Another Saturday and another day of mental purges…..I take the weekends to stay away from news of any sorts as a way to clear the mind for the coming week…..I admit that it is harder to do than one may consider especially if you are a wonk like myself and feel the need to stay abreast of current events.
I gotta get a little history in…..today in 1913 the 16th amendment became law….allowing an income tax…..
I have considered in the past, especially after the election of Trump, to push away from all news for an extended time….and I considered the consequences of such a move and chose to put it out of my head.
Then I read an article by someone who tried to go a week with the silliness of the MSM…..his experience is list in this article…..
My point: I wanted to see what I could learn about the modern news media by looking at how thoroughly Mr. Trump had subsumed it. In one way, my experiment failed: I could find almost no Trump-free part of the press.
It is inescapable!
Go now and enjoy your day….be well, be safe…..chuq
